    I remember someone calling out Sidney Rice a month ago.....who was it?

    Wasn't me.

    From reading several posts in the other thread, apparently most here shouldn't have a problem with AD, Rice or Harvin missing a bunch of camp, since the team doesn't seem to have a problem with it.

    Right boys?

    bullshit.

    They're missing for legitimate reasons, Favre, while yes, he is recovering, really just doesn't want to be there.

    If peterson/Harvin/Rice were just skipping TC just because, you can bet the team wouldn't be thrilled.

    I'd compare Favre missing camp to Jerry Rice or Emmitt Smith missing camp. They can afford to. Rice and Harvin especially can not.

    Just how I see it. Its not skill level that dictates whether you can miss, its a combination of all things.

    I think, Emmitt Smith could have skipped, but Barry Sanders could not. Jim Marshall could have missed some, while Jared Allen cannot. Longetivity in the league should play in. These guys have been to more training camps than most players could dream of going to. They're not going to take much from it. As long as they stay in shape and come ready to play in the preseason at a very high level, I dont care, and the team doesn't care.
